Application of Regulation
2   This Regulation applies to royalty on eligible production recovered 
or obtained from a new well on or after April 1, 2009.
New well
3(1)  Subject to subsection (4), a well is a new well if the well 
	(a)	commences production of crude oil or gas in the period 
commencing on April 1, 2009, and ending on March 31, 
2011, and 
	(b)	had no production before April 1, 2009. 
(2)  Subject to subsection (4), a well that recommences production of 
crude oil or gas in the period commencing on April 1, 2009, and 
ending on March 31, 2011, is a new well 
	(a)	if the well did not produce crude oil or gas, other than 
excluded production, at any time in the period that 
commenced on January 1, 2007, and ended on March 31, 
2009, or
	(b)	if
	(i)	the well did produce crude oil or gas, other than 
excluded production, in the period referred to in clause 
(a), but not in the period that commenced on January 1, 
2009, and ended on March 31, 2009, and
	(ii)	the total average monthly production rate of the well of 
	(A)	crude oil, and 
	(B)	gas
		that is recovered or obtained from the well and 
converted into equivalent volumes of oil as determined 
by the Minister is less than 100 cubic metres of oil per 
production month.
(3)  For the purposes of subsection (2)(b)(ii), the average monthly 
production rate of a well must be determined by the Minister based on 
the following production months: 
	(a)	if the well had 3 or more production months in the period that 
commenced on January 1, 2007, and ended on December 31, 
2008, the last 3 production months in that period, or
	(b)	if the well had fewer than 3 production months in the period 
referred to in clause (a), those production months.
(4)  A well is not a new well if the well
	(a)	is part of a Project under the Oil Sands Royalty Regulation, 
2009 (AR 223/2008), 
	(b)	contains a well event in respect of which the Minister has, at 
any time, prescribed a quantity of conservation gas pursuant 
to section 7(10)(b) or (d) of the Natural Gas Royalty 
Regulation, 2009 (AR 221/2008) or section 6(12)(b) of the 
Natural Gas Royalty Regulation, 2002 (AR 220/2002), or
	(c)	ceases to be a new well under section 6.
(5)  Additional information must be provided to the Minister by the 
operator or licensee of a well if required to aid in determining whether 
the well meets the requirements of this section.
(6)  For the purposes of subsections (1)(b) and (2)(a) and (b)(i), if a 
well did not produce crude oil or gas in a month because the Board 
suspended production from the well for a contravention of or 
non-compliance with the Oil and Gas Conservation Act or the Oil 
Sands Conservation Act, the regulations under either Act or an order of 
the Board, that month is deemed to be a month in which the well 
produced crude oil or gas.
Eligible production
4   Crude oil or gas recovered or obtained from a well event is eligible 
production if
	(a)	it is not excluded production,
	(b)	it is recovered or obtained from a well event in a new well, 
	(c)	the Crown interest in it is greater than 0%, and
	(d)	it is subject to the payment of royalty under the Petroleum 
Royalty Regulation, 2009 (AR 222/2008), the Natural Gas 
Royalty Regulation, 2009 (AR 221/2008) or section 27 of the 
Oil Sands Royalty Regulation, 2009 (AR 223/2008).
Royalty reduction on eligible production
5(1)  If crude oil or gas recovered or obtained from a well event is 
eligible production, the royalty otherwise payable to the Crown on that 
crude oil or gas is reduced to a maximum of 5% until
	(a)	the end of the 12th eligible production month of the well that 
contains the well event, 
	(b)	the date that the volume cap is reached for the well that 
contains the well event, 
	(c)	the date that the well becomes part of a Project under the Oil 
Sands Royalty Regulation, 2009 (AR 223/2008), or
	(d)	March 31, 2012,
whichever occurs first.
(2)  For the purposes of subsection (1)(a), if a month was not an 
eligible production month of a well because the Board suspended 
production from the well for a contravention of or non-compliance 
with the Oil and Gas Conservation Act or the Oil Sands Conservation 
Act, the regulations under either Act or an order of the Board, that 
month is deemed to be an eligible production month.
Volume cap
6   A new well reaches its volume cap and ceases to be a new well 
when the total of the eligible production recovered or obtained from 
the well and converted into equivalent volumes of oil as determined by 
the Minister exceeds the equivalent of 7949 cubic metres of oil.
Excluded production
7(1)  The Minister may, on application, determine that any substance 
recovered from a well is excluded production if the Minister is of the 
opinion that
	(a)	the substance was recovered in an isolated occurrence that 
was a test of the well,
	(b)	the quantity of the substance recovered is consistent with a 
test of the well, 
	(c)	the number of hours over which the substance is recovered is 
consistent with a test of the well,
	(d)	during the test of the well all gas recovered from the well was 
flared or vented, and 
	(e)	after the test of the well all gas recovered from the well was 
conserved. 
(2)  An application under subsection (1) must contain all the 
information required by the Minister and be made within the time 
period required by the Minister.
Factors affecting entitlement
8   If the Minister is of the opinion that
	(a)	production from a well that is subject to a royalty reduction 
has resulted in a material reduction in the production of crude 
oil or gas from another well, production from which is not 
subject to a royalty reduction,
	(b)	a provision of this Regulation has not been complied with in 
relation to a well,
	(c)	compliance with section 47(6) of the Act in connection with 
an audit or examination relating to a royalty reduction in 
respect of a well has been inadequate, or
	(d)	one or more acts, agreements, arrangements, transactions or 
operations were, before or after the coming into force of this 
Regulation, effected for the purpose of improperly, 
artificially or unduly obtaining a royalty reduction in respect 
of a well,
the Minister may determine that eligible production recovered or 
obtained from the well may not in whole or in part receive a royalty 
reduction, or may revoke a royalty reduction in whole or in part.
Effect of revocation
9   If the Minister revokes a royalty reduction under section 8 in 
respect of a new well, royalty on the eligible production recovered or 
obtained from the well is calculated as if entitlement to the reduction 
never arose or arose only in part, in accordance with the revocation.  
Reinstatement of royalty reduction
10(1)  If the Minister considers it appropriate to do so, the Minister 
may reinstate a royalty reduction that was revoked wholly or in part 
under section 8.
(2)  If the Minister reinstates a royalty reduction under subsection (1) 
in respect of a new well, royalty on the eligible production recovered 
or obtained from the well is calculated as if entitlement to the 
reduction was never revoked.
(3)  A reinstatement made by the Minister under subsection (1) may be 
made effective on a date earlier than the date the reinstatement is 
made, but may not be effective in respect of any period of time for 
which the Minister's power under section 38 of the Act to recalculate 
or make additional calculations of the Crown's royalty share of a 
mineral has expired.
Reporting circumstances affecting eligibility
11   An operator or licensee must notify the Minister in writing on 
learning of any circumstances that indicate that crude oil or gas was 
not eligible in whole or in part for a royalty reduction that was applied
